The System has Sound but Media Players don’t have sounds in Windows 10 Anniversary Version


I downloaded a video in mp4 format but when tried to play there was only picture without any audio.

Strange enough there is sound in system, I can watch videos on YouTube fine but when I use any media player eg. Groove, WMP12 or VLC Player it emits no sound.

I downloaded the codecs also, checked that the system has latest audio driver. How to fix?


Right click on Volume icon present in the Taskbar, select Sounds, and click Playback, right click on a different playback device and set it as default. Don’t forget to click on OK or Apply.
